By the time UFC 249 begins on 9 March 2020, it'll have been 53 days since the last time the promotion put on an event. Even during the days when cards were more sporadic, we've rarely had a break between events that has lasted this long. It's been awhile since we've seen two talented fighters put on some 4oz gloves and scrap it out inside the Octagon and it's certainly been missed.
Luckily for the fans who have been waiting at home patiently for even a sniff of mixed martial arts action, this event has been built to deliver completely insane levels of violence. It's often said that cards are "stacked from top-to-bottom", but that's not always the case. However, there isn't one fight you should miss at UFC 249 and we're here to break them down for you.
From the fascinating main event between lightweight contenders, Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje, to the first bout between ultra exciting 205lbers Ryan Spann and Sam Alvey, not only is the only live sport in town at the moment, it's probably the best UFC card we're going to get all year.
